Ocean and Climate Forum
The Ocean and Climate Forum will be the major event of the day dedicated to the Ocean on December 3rd in the Climate Generations Areas. It will be the first time in history that the ocean will have such an important part in a UNFCCC COP.
Organized by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission, the Ocean and Climate Platform and the Global Ocean Forum, the Ocean and Climate Forum at COP21 will be a follow up of World Oceans Day celebrations, June 8 2015 at UNESCO Headquarters.
The Ocean and Climate Forum will focus on the implementation of the Ocean Call for Climate, also launched on June 8.
Furthermore, the Ocean and Climate Forum will promote an interactive debate about:
- the role of the ocean in the climate system,
- the ocean-based technical solutions for climate change mitigation and adaptation, and
- the future research and funding needs.
